In his first televised interview since the verdict, he spoke with ABC News (played in part on Good Morning America on Tuesday) and said:
“What I’m saying is I didn’t do what they say I did. I didn’t do it. I never grabbed her. I never had my hand under her skirt — and I can pass a polygraph [test].”
He went on to explain his hand placement in the infamous meet-and-greet photo:
“I wasn’t invited to be in the photo, so I just moved into the shot the best I could.”
When asked why he waited two years to sue the singer for defamation, Mueller explained that he initially “asked for something in writing, which stated there was a misunderstanding” in order to “possibly convince” radio stations to hire him after being fired from KYGO, to no avail. He also announced he may appeal the jury’s decision from yesterday.
